Microsoft Photo Editor, Clip Gallery 3.0, and Publisher 97 rely on externalgraphics filters when opening graphics files. If a graphics import filteris damaged or missing, these applications will not be able to insert thattype of graphic. This article describes how to use the Office 97 Setupprogram to reinstall the .jpg graphics filter if it has become damaged.
  1. On the Start Menu, point to Programs, and click Windows Explorer.
  2. Locate and open the following folder:
          C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Grphflt						
  3. Rename the Jpegim32.flt file to Jpegim32.old.
  4. Insert the Office 97 compact disc and run the Setup program.
  5. When the Maintenance Mode screen appears, click Reinstall.
The Reinstall mode of the Office 97 Setup program replaces missing filesand writes the associated registry key for that file. If the graphicsfilter was not initially installed, then the Setup program does notidentify it as missing, and the Reinstall mode will not install thegraphics filter. If the graphics filters have never been installed, you canchoose Add/Remove when you rerun Setup in maintenance mode to install them.

You may still be able to insert .jpg files into Microsoft PowerPoint 97,Word 97, and Microsoft Excel 97 files, even if you are unable to insertthem into Photo Editor, Clip Gallery, or Publisher 97 files. This isbecause PowerPoint 97, Word 97, and Microsoft Excel 97 can import .jpgfiles natively without a filter. However, Photo Editor, Clip Gallery, andPublisher 97 require Jpegim32.flt to read the JPEG File Interchange format.
